The dark tunnels and shadowy chambers of this popular tourist cave wind through nearly four kilometers of dimly lit underground passages. Visitors can only explore Cango Caves on guided group tours, which are offered in two vastly different options. The standard tour takes travelers through easy-going portions of the caves, where sharply pointed stalactites and stalagmites aglow from spotlights make for impressive photos. Adventure tours take more daring travelers up steep rocky passes and through narrow tunnels, including a 15 centimeter-wide passage that visitors must navigate on their stomachs and elbows.
The Cango Caves are located on Scenic Cape Route 62 29 kilometers from Oudtshoom near the Swartberg Mountains. Hertiage tours operate from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily and cost R80 for adults and R45 for children. Adventure tours take place from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. daily and cost R100 for adults and R60 for children.
